Baby Milestones

Posted on 19 March, 2021 at 10:45

Developmental milestones are things most children can do by a certain age. Children reach milestones in how they play, speak, behave, and move!

Remember these are milestones are listed under the FIRST month in which your child MAY achieve them. Babies develop at different rates! Try to avoid comparing your baby to other babies! Always consult with your health care provider if you are worried.


3 months

  • Holds head up unsupported
  • Props up on arms when on belly
  • Holds objects but does not reach for them

4 months

  • Sits with support
  • Rolls form back to side
  • Grasps objects with both hands


7 months

  • Sits without support
  • Bears full weight on feet
  • Bounces when held in standing position


9 months

  • Begins to crawl
  • Pulls to a standing position from sitting
  • Sits for a prolonged time (10 minutes)


12 months

  • Able to stand alone
  • Walks with one hand held, may attempt first steps alone

PTs treat children with a variety of conditions (but are not limited to):

  • Generalized developmental delays
  • Cerebral palsy
  • Spina bifida
  • Duchenne muscular dystrophy
  • Scoliosis
  • Torticollis

Your child may need to see a pediatric PT if they:

  • Have flattening on one side of the head
  • Feels “floppy” (they have low muscle tone)
  • Have a strong preference to look one side
  • Were Born prematurely
  • Are hitting milestones late
